To err is human

Mistakes do not just happen. They develop, at human intervention. Almost all the people walking down the newsroom have a role in such mistakes. Writers' mistakes get in print for editors' oversight. Editors mangle copies and even correct copies develop mistakes on the stone. And all have their reasons to explain the occurrence of such mistakes. In the blog, I will record such anecdotes of the newsroom of a national newspaper published in the English langauge from Dhaka, Bangladesh. But many of the mistakes are spotted before they get to the printers'. I will also try to record them.
